    I’m not a big fan of mashed potatoes (which is great for my uncle who could eat the whole pot at Thanksgiving). But I do love most everything made with sweet potatoes. This recipe could give me a whole new outlook on the traditional side dish.

  2. Thanks Liz; hope you enjoy them! They’re delish!
